HEMI launches Extreme Arts Program with MICA

The HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program is a new initiative that will bring together faculty and students from Johns Hopkins University and the Maryland Institute College of Art to explore unique perspectives on extreme events. The program aims to encourage collaboration among artists and researchers to examine data, interpret outcomes, and translate results from extreme events in new ways. It is our hope that this dialogue will create a stronger community through a shared sense of curiosity and exploration.

The goals of the HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program are:

  • To provide an opportunity for meaningful engagement among engineers, scientists, artists, and designers that sparks a creative dialogue and leads to new outcomes
  • To explore systems of communication that translate ideas and provide platforms for engineers, scientists, artists, and designers to discuss concepts and develop a common understanding
  • To create programming between JHU researchers and MICA faculty/students that examines new approaches to HEMI-related materials research and data visualization
  • To design a framework that serves as a model for sustained, long-term partnership between JHU and MICA

The Extreme Arts Program provides a flexible and robust framework to support collaborative activities and opportunities. This collaboration between science, engineering, art, and design will provide exciting and innovative ways to address and present complex subjects.

To launch the program, an open house will be held from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on April 16 in Malone Hall. The event will provide an opportunity for JHU and MICA faculty to learn about each other's research interests and explore potential synergies. More details about the event are here. Registration is required to attend.
